Irma Weakens & Jose Is In A Holding Pattern

Good morning bloggers,

Hurricane Irma made landfall on Sunday and then moved inland near Marco Island. Once Irma moved inland a steady weakening happened sparing Florida a worst case scenario.  You can see what is left of weakening Irma this morning, but also Hurricane Jose that is in a holding pattern east of the Bahamas.  Jose will be monitored closely and we have another week to track Jose.


Jose is going to do a complete loop in the next few days and I will show it on the air tonight on 41 Action News.  Jose will then make a move towards the east coast. The models I looked at this morning mostly keep Jose out to sea, but there are some models that bring Jose into the mid-Atlantic or northeast coast.  I haven’t done a complete analysis of the pattern yet, so let me do that and we can discuss in the comments over on Weather2020.com.

This map above shows the European Model forecast valid at 7 AM Sunday. Jose can be seen off the Florida coast, and a cold front with a chance of thunderstorms is stretching across the upper midwest into the plains states. Kansas City is having another very dry first half of the month, in fact not one drop of rain yet this month. We will look into this change in the next few days.



Have a great start to Monday.  Again, I am quite proud of our weather team as 41 Action News won the Emmy for best news special with our Winter Weather Special featuring our winter forecast and the Cycling Pattern Hypothesis.  We are now just two and a half months away from our winter forecast as the new pattern is about to set up.
